enforcement. so now what the obama administration has decided to do is nearly double the amount of acreage that is off limits for logging. it's now 9.6 million-acres. but it's not going to do any good because the real culprit in the disappearance of the northern spotted owl is no, not loggers or people who work in the timber industry. it's another owl! so guess what, now we're going to fund the fish and wildlife service to do, shoot this other owl, the predatory barred owl, in order to save -- >> brian: you're kidding? >> no, i'm not kidding. shooting owls to save them. this is liberal environmental protectionism and the logic that yields these kind of results. hello! taxpayers, are you listening! >> steve: go to twitchy.com and you'll be twitching when you hear about this. michelle, thank you very much. have a great weekend. we'll see you next week. >> you bet. >> brian: who would be the good owl and who would be the bad owl? >> steve: you better -- >> gretchen: i wouldn't want to be the shooter. coming up, housing act set to expire in a few weeks could cost homeowners a whole lot of mone
to a kr credible location. >> and the obama administration is saying what the united nations did unilaterally was a setback. do you agree with that? the body i represent is split. some people are in favor of the u.s. vote. the truth of it, the only thing that will work to deliver a palestinian state side-by-side with a secure state of israel is peace. as you can see we have a chance now. the president has been re-elected. i know he's deeply personally committed to this and we just have to regrip it, i'm afraid. >> what's gone wrong? >> it's partly because there's so much turmoil in the region right now. it's how each side views its own prospects. >> how would you characterize a credible negotiation given the fact as long as we've been alive there's been these problems that keep erupting and never, ever get solved? we've been trying for 20, 30 years. it was 50, 60 years before we got one that worked. and actually back in the year 2000, and again in 2008, you have no option in the end. the only thing that works is to make it credible if we shape the negotiations. give it some shape
's right. house republicans say there will be no deal if tax ritz go up and the obama administration says it's ready to go thelma and louise style over the cliff on january 1. if that's the case, wendell goler live at the white house with what we know is going on behind the scenes. anything happening? >> steve, the president and house speaker john boehner talked on the phone yesterday, but they agreed not to characterize their conversation. so it's unclear how much progress they made. from the outside, it does seem they've moved a bit closer with boehner now agreeing to raise tax collection from the wealthy, though not by raising tax rates. >> we've got to cut spending and i believe to put revenues on the table. the revenues we're putting on the table will come from, guess who, the rich! there are ways to limit deductions, close loopholes, and have the same people pay more of their money to the federal government without raising tax rates which we believe will harm our economy. >> the president lobbied big business leaders yesterday with an appearance at the business round table. his aide
to "morning joe." 6:25. a look at the "morning papers." "the new york times," the obama administration reportedly considering a variety of options to put an end to the violence in syria including sending direct aid and providing surface-to-air missiles to turkey. the decision to send missiles to turkey could come as early as next week according to "the times." >> "wall street journal," federal reserve likely to keep in place policy decisions made earlier this year in an effort to further boost the economy. in the fed ace latest report, says the economy grew at, quote, measured pace over the past two months, still the central bank hinted that -- i can't see. >> you've got to get those glasses on, donnie. poor guy. >> continuation of purchasing -- >> this is not a vanity moment, donnie. >> put the glasses on. you're not even on camera. oh, they're reading glasses. that was reading. >> that's why i'd never replace brian williams. >> yeah, it's just the glasses, really. "the detroit news," the auto industry has good reason to be optimistic despite the threat of the fiscal cliff. sales numb
that the obama administration loves to talk about which is government investment in green technologies. we keep hearing we can't concede the next decade of things like solar panel technology to the chinese, henceforth we have to invest in companies like sillinger. is that true? >> it's true, i think,a gross sense. the chinese have been pouring money into pharma and aerospace. the u.s. needs to sort of invest in this to stay even at least with the chinese. discussing mainly small, private startups. and i think a lot of these will spin out of the clean energy industry. sustained government investment in industries of the future, i think, is important. >> i was going to say if china is becoming more expensive because people are asking for higher wages, didn't we see the same thing when japan was a low-wage country, hong kong, isn't there always going to be a country like bangladesh with lower wages that production will shift, too? >> possibly, except china is so much a category of its own. the scale is the biggest in the world. the infrastructure is unique. you want to move things to burma, you ha
past the hour. time now to take a look at the "morning papers." "the new york times," the obama administration secret arms shipments to qatar to help overthrow moammar gadhafi. according to "the times," some of those weapons were turned over to islamic militant groups. the support from qatar helped destabilize gadhafi's regime, but american officials remain concerned over where the arms ended up. >> "the wall street journal," egypt descending into political turmoil after another night of intense clashes on the doorsteps of the presidential palace. it's the largest confrontation since the revolution that overthrew hosni mubarak. critics say he's rushing through a constitution with an islamic agenda. >>> u.s. and russian senior diplomats will meet today with the united nations peace envoy for syria in an attempt to end the civil war there. this comes as pentagon sources tell nbc news there is intelligence suggesting the syrian government has loaded sarin gas into aerial bombs and awaiting command from president assad for its use. >>> and from our parade of papers, "the san francis
. it has a spending problem. under this administration under president obama we have seen record deficits and a record debt accumulate and yet he keeps demanding that we raise taxes -- >> those are some of the republican leadership in the house as you can see responding to the white house's response to their counteroffer of a couple days ago as a reminder the president is going to speak to the business roundtable at 10:50 this morning. we think he'll take some questions even as gop leadership is meeting with small businesses as negotiations or lack thereof over the fiscal cliff continue. >> did you see that the nbc white house team is reporting the belief that perhaps the republicans don't have the fight in them anymore to really dig in now on the concessions on the way which is good news if you don't want to go over the fiscal cliff but they are dispelling the real argument for later on. >> fuel line inspections being ordered for boeing 787 dreamliner. phil lebeau has more on this story. >> a rough day yesterday if you are tracking what's happening with the dreamliner. one of two importa
